Candytech Was born on 19 April 2014:
Candytech was Born on 19 April 2014, and is 3 years old now. Whole Idea was to create a website that offer best tech articles for readers. We have got enormous success and praise from readers in the short span of time and now we have close to 600,000 monthly readers. Also there are 30K social media influencers and email readers.
How it all Started – The Beginning!
I bought my first graphic card Nvidia MX 400 when I was 17 years old and year was 2001. I had Celeron powered computer and Asus motherboard, when I first added the card to it, the effect was magical. Games like IGI and Maxpayne, Need for speed 4 & 5 looked breathtaking on the old CRT monitor. My love for gaming increased and have been a PC gamer all these years.
It continued to evolve and I learnt more about graphic cards, processors, overclocking, benchmarks and testing hardware, android custom roms, app development, website development, SEO , Photoshop and Video editing. The journey continued for 14 years, till in 2014 I got inspired to share the immense pool of thoughts accumulated in the past 14 years. Also in the years I bought more graphics cards, laptops and mobiles and did bench marking, overclocking and all experiments I could think of.
Also I got into troubles, hard bricking a handset and burning a processor after overclocking, I had my share of fun on this journey. When you are a gamer and computer enthusiast there are many things you pick up naturally. I learnt basic programming, C & C++, specialize in Analytics. Analytics software like SPSS & SAS , Google Analytics – they were easy to learn and adapt.
Being a blogger teaches a lot many things, writing and sharing is just a part, I learnt WordPress, how to make a website, SEO , Social media marketing, a bit of coding, Photoshop, Adobe Premier Pro & Final Cut PRO X, and many more things.
I am a normal guy with various interest like tech, gaming, driving, photography, writing , reading & travelling. Have traveled across country to almost all states and love driving My POLO when ever i go on long drives.
On academic front I did Engineering from Kurukshetra University followed by MBA from FORE school of management. The love for gadgets and technology remained (education ruins you).
I ran Candytech along with my Job initially, but after 2.5 years of running the website, I decided to give up my high paying job in telecom sector as an AGM and work full time on Candytech. I have 9 years of enriching experience in Telecom sector.
I like to follow corporate/marketing strategy of companies and marketing campaigns and Telecom & you will also find some tech stories on Strategy and Marketing or Telecom on Candytech.
My Gadgets: I personally now use a Samsung S7, a PC with overclocked Core i7 6700K with GTX 1060, a Macbook Pro, and a Lenovo Yoga 710 laptop.
How Candytech Grew from Just a FaceBook Page to a Popular Website
Year 2014 – I started a Facebook page and started sharing articles/reviews I wrote, to share the knowledge with the tech community and use my knowledge. I never had any idea back then, I will have a website one day. Facebook restricted me for the simple reason it restricts to share content with all the followers of the Facebook page. (you need to pay Mark to have higher page reach).
I was new to this but realized Facebook is not the platform to use, so I searched for some days and read about blogger/wordpress to start a small website. WordPress looked more refined, it impressed me and with better aesthetics and something readers would actually like, I bought WP hosting and started. I had no knowledge of websites or anything related at the time. Just took the leap of faith, and started.
The vision and thought behind starting a website on tech was simple, to share what I have learnt over the years and to discover further and evolve. I ensure whatever I will share will be the best I know and dedicated to the Candytech followers. I daily read 5-6 hours on various topics and had been doing so for last decade.
At Candytech I don’t want to share just the news and gadgets information, I pick the best apps, best gadgets, mobiles, graphics cards, games and do thorough research on them.
We test them as well, through my industry contacts, I manage to get various gadgets/smartphones/PC hardware.
Best Value for Money is my core belief in writing any review or giving advice.
Most websites teach how to make more money, Candytech has a core belief about saving it and using the money in a way it gives you maximum return.
I will appreciate if you have any suggestions or feedback to share about Candytech.
